Leeds United would have to subsidise the wages of Joe Gelhardt if he completes a loan move to Plymouth Argyle, according to journalist Alan Nixon.


Gelhardt is well down the pecking order at Leeds under Daniel Farke and faces limited game time if he remains at the club this month.


Leeds are open to loaning him out and there has been substantial interest in the striker from clubs in the Championship.




Championship outfit Plymouth have joined the hunt for Gelhardt and it is suggested Leeds might let him join the Pilgrims as they are not promotion rivals.


However, Gelhardt is on a substantial pay packet at Leeds and that is an issue for some interested clubs.



If the striker is to move to Home Park then Leeds will need to shoulder some of his salary during the loan spell.


Plymouth have just appointed a new boss in the shape of Ian Foster.



Foster most recently worked alongside Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard at Saudi Pro League side Al-Ettifaq.
